According to the official Beanie Baby Ty Collector Society this is the value of Beanies as of July 2016.

From the official site: Contrary to all of the hype, misinformation and secondary market speculation, even a "first edition" version of Princessmade in China is currently worth approximately $29. A "first edition" version of Princess made in Indonesia is worth approximately $34. This is a lengthy article. If you are only interested in the current value of Princess, refer to the value table below. Collectors interested in additional information about the history and value of Princess, should read the article that follows the "value table" section.

Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Rubylane, which is a more upscale site where people sell more expensive items. There is also Tias and GoAntiques, which is on the same scale of Rubylane. There is Amazon Market Place, ArtFire and of course Ebay. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great!
